The Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation is participating in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge half marathon and 5k run/walk again this year and we would love for you to join our team! You don’t need to be an athlete to join. All you need is a passion for compassionate HIV care at the Dr. Peter Centre, because that’s what unites us as a team and carries us all over the finish line!
Last year, runners who participated in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge on the Red Ribbon Roadrunners helped to raise over $3,000. This year, our goal is to raise even more! There will be exciting prizes from The Juicery Co., Tacofino, Semperviva Yoga, and Red Truck Brewing for our top fundraisers, as well as running and fundraising tips!
Every contribution makes a difference. When you run, walk or pledge on behalf of the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation, you help provide vital care for people living with HIV.
Here’s how to join in the fun by being part of our team:
Step One- Sign up as a runner or walker!
Once at the Scotiabank Charity Challenge section, choose "yes" and select the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation. Make sure to use our charity codes to receive a discounted rate: Half-Marathon: 17DPAF21K and 5k: 17DPAF5K
Step Two - Sign up to fundraise
On the same page, select "Create a Scotiabank Charity Challenge Fundraising Account" and create a username and password for Artez, an online fundraising platform.
If you can’t join us in the race, maybe you can sponsor our team by making a donation online!
Step Three - Join the team!
Once you receive the email to set up your personal fundraising page, click through to set up your page, upload a picture and write a statement telling your followers why you’re running. Then, select "Join a Team" and search for the Red Ribbon Roadrunners!
Step Four - Start training and fundraising!
If it seems daunting to begin the process of collecting pledges, I will be sending a concise set of tips to help you get started! If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
